The purpose of teak oil is to replenish the natural oils that may have been lost and the intention therefore is to have the wood soak in the oil. If you put sealer on before you oil it, you will likely prevent the oil from piercing the wood as it should. I have heard of people doing things the other way around: applying oil and then applying sealer. Theoretically, this would let the oil penetrate the wood and then the sealer would seal it in so that it cannot leak out over time. I have heard that this works to give the effects of the oil without the trouble of reapplying every few months. However, in most cases oils and sealers are spoken of as choices. One or the other. I have never tried both so I am hesitant to advise you to do so.
